About Americamps

Park Info

We are located on the north shore of beautiful Lake Gaston, just 5 miles east of the I-85 exit #4. Just look for us on the right side of Rt. 903. Our address is: 9 Lakeside Lane, Bracey, Va. 23919. Lake Gaston Americamps is a family owned and family oriented campground with planned activities.

Americamps is located on Lake Gaston, one of the truly most outstanding lakes in the country. It has over 20,000 acres of "high quality" water, 34 miles long, and approximately one and one half miles wide at the lower end of the lake. It has over 350 miles of shoreline.

Lake Gaston is well stocked with game fish including striped bass or rockfish, largemouth bass, crappie, sunfish, and several varieties of catfish. Other species of fish sometimes caught are walleye, yellow perch, and chain pickerel.

Fishing licenses are required. A valid license for Virginia or North Carolina permits fishing in "the lake" in either state, from boats or shore, in waters accessible by boat. No license is required for those under 16 years of age.
